Now this is some good stuff
The nose has wonderful full oak on it, coupled with spices and a hint of cedar. I do like what American oak gives to a rum.
The thing that struck me most was how unctuous the rum was in the mouth. It filled it with velvety smooth rum, that seems so much thicker and more viscous than the 12yo. Again the American oak shines through, which is what I really like in a rum.
The 48% is smooth as, and a really well judged bottling strength.
I did decide to compare with the 12yo. Straight after the 14yo it is unsurprisingly a disappointment. Still nice, and at 40% is an easy drinker, but the 14yo is so much more. What I would like to try is the 12yo at 48%. I think 40% does it an injustice.
Doorly's 12 year is one of my favourite rums and i was hoping this would be as good or even better. I was not disappointed! This actually tastes even slightly better than the 12 year and still has a wonderful finish that seems to last throughout. Overall this is a fantastic rum and i look forward to buying a bottle.
wow. this is really a very good rum. lovely blood orange after taste (not bitter or valencia orange for me). some burnt caramel and very dark chocolate. not sweetened that i can detect. i am buying this and trying the 12 and XO as well. this is really something.

One of the very best in its price range.
Very round, and crazy length.
Fruity nose but then a more oak/vanilla mouth, super easy to enjoy, hard not to take another glass
"Lots of ginger and spicy oak on the initial entry. There is a slightly bDoorly's Fine Old Barbados Rum Aged 14 Years rum review by the fat rum pirateitter note in the oak notes. A slight astringency. Finish wise we are left with a spicy and slightly heated end to the rum."
